FDA Tells Man To Stop Donating Sperm On The Internet

A man from the San Francisco Bay area has fathered 14 children in the last five years through free sperm donations to childless couples he meets on the Internet — and is now in trouble with the federal government.
Trent Arsenault of Fremont says he donates sperm out of a sense of service to help people who want to have children but can’t afford conventional sperm banks. The 36-year-old minister’s son has four more children on the way.
“I always had known through people praying at church that there’s fertility issues,” Arsenault told The Associated Press on Monday. “I thought it would just be a neat way of service to help the community.”

This gives new meaning to "community service." Wait until the high school guys get wind of this. Maryland requires 75 hours of community service to graduate. This sounds like as easy a way as any to donate their time and whatever else they want to donate.

More government intrusion into our civil rights and liberty -- where's the ACLU when really needed?

as long as the offspring are made aware of their 'father'. with so many 'donations' out there, at some pont in time the children could meet a half sibling and not be aware of the fact. this could cause some heart breaking situations.
